2016 EurAsia Cup

The EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM is a biennial men's professional team golf tournament between teams representing Europe and Asia. It superseded the Royal Trophy which had been played from 2006 to 2013.

Format

The EurAsia Cup involves various match play competitions between players selected from two teams of twelve.

The winner of each match scores a point for his team, with a half point each for any match that is tied after the 18 holes. The winning team is determined by cumulative total points. The inaugural EurAsia Cup concluded with both teams tied on 10 points each, which resulted in the EurAsia Cup being shared between the two teams. In the event of a tie in future editions, the EurAsia Cup will be retained by the team who held it before the contest.

Year Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Total points
2014 5 fourballs 5 foursomes 10 singles 20
2016 6 fourballs 6 foursomes 12 singles 24

History

The first contest was played in March 2014 at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. 10-man teams played a series of 20 matches involving four-ball, foursomes and singles. The result was a 10-10 tie and the Cup was shared.

The second contest was played from 15-17 January 2016 at the same venue. The team size had been increased to 12 with a total of 24 matches played.[1]
